Table 2 Correlations between sedentary behavior and physical activity variables.

From: Volume, patterns, and types of sedentary behavior and cardio-metabolic health in children and adolescents: a cross-sectional study

  Volume of SB Bouts of SB Breaks in Bouts of SB TV Computer MVPA Low Intensity PA
Volume of SB - .84 -.20 .08 .19 -.70 -.90
Bouts of SB   - -.26 .05 .21 -.52 -.80
Breaks in Bouts of SB    - -.02 -.11 -.03 -.77
TV     - .15 -.06 -.07
Computer      - -.15 -.18
MVPA       - .31
Low Intensity PA        -
  1. SB = sedentary behavior; MVPA = moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity; PA = physical activity.
  2. All correlations were significant (P ≤ 0.05) except for the correlations between Breaks in Bouts of SB with MVPA and TV
